Here is a quote from one of my former players:
“It is a privilege to have Gina Aman as our softball coach at Franklin. Coach Aman has high expectations for every player that steps on the field and stresses the importance of academics. Everyday Gina pushes us to and sometimes above our potential as student-athletes. Coach Aman’s strength and knowledge of the game inspires me to become a better student-athlete and achieve my goals.”
I currently work for Portland Public Schools in the Special Education Department and I am the Head Softball Coach at Franklin HS in my 13th year.
I still play fastpitch softball in the summer.
